UUJO: 20th Anniversary and Farewell Concert for Ulf Johansson Werre
The Uppsala University Jazz Orchestra was established 20 years ago through the initiative of the former Vice-Chancellor Bo Sundqvist. This milestone is now being celebrated with a big concert in the University Grand auditorium. Simultaneously, the orchestra's artistic director since its inception, Ulf Johansson Werre, is retiring from his university position after the autumn semester.
In addition to UUJO performing big band classics and the orchestra's unique original compositions, a substantial array of guests who have contributed over the years will be joining in.
Participants: Klas Lindquist (saxophone, clarinet), John Högman (saxophone), Andreas Pettersson (guitar), Erik Tengholm (trumpet), Klas Toresson (saxophone), Oscar Johansson Werre (drums), strings from The Royal Academic Orchestra, as well as current and former vocalists. Pleasant surprises may occur!
